One No Trump

Okay, I’m out.

I won’t lie.

I’d hoped Donald Trump, once the Republican nomination was secured, would awaken from his macho fulminations and realize that he was just a heartbeat from the Oval Office.
That he would pivot from dog whistles and bluster and Mexican walls and Muslim bans and recognize that the leadership of the free world was his for the taking.

But he didn’t.

Because he couldn’t.
